Building, painting and finishing aircraft models of all scales.
Another Airfix 1/72 gem of a kit. The fit is great, as are the decals. I did the Korean war selection kit decals. Which must have been a popular plane as Tamiya's and Italeri's 1/72 also offers the same bird in their 1/72 kits. As great as the[...]
Hi There, A nice little kit pretty much straight out of the box other than some masking tape belts, vaping wire ejector seat loops and some white decal lines. Primed with UMP Grey Painted with Colourcoats Extra Dark Sea Grey, Sky Type S, Light [...]
Just completed the superlative Tamiya Zero. it is a much more complex kit than I am used to building, but it went together without a hitch. this was my first attempt with multilayer chipping, and I have learned some lessons that I will use for[...]
